Strike: no air traffic disruptions reported at Tunis-Carthage Airport (OACA)

September 10, 2022

(TAP) - 'No air traffic disruptions have been reported at Tunis-Carthage Airport and no flights have been cancelled so far,' Director of Communications and Public Relations at the Civil Aviation and Airport Authority (French: OACA) Mohamed Walid Ben Ghachem said on Friday.

Answering a question about the impact of the strike staged by air traffic technicians on flights to and from Tunisia, Ben Gachem further told TAP the OACA general management took necessary measures to deal with any disruption, including requisition.

The aim, he said, is to 'preserve Tunisia's reputation abroad,' particularly as Tunisian expatriates are returning to their host countries and tourists are heading home.

Requisition comes at a time when air traffic is recovering after two years into the COVID-19 pandemic, the official said. Air passenger traffic in Tunisian airports posted a 173 % rise in in H1 of 2022.

Two crisis cells chaired by the OACA Director General were set up at Tunis-Carthage Airport and at the aviation authority so as to ensure the regularity of flights and the safety of passengers and supervise the management of the national airspace.
